15 Oct, 2009

15 Oct, 2009

16 Oct, 2009

 

thanx janette, this is the second time this year but not seen one myself till now :o)

16 Oct, 2009

 

I get them on my balcony here in London, on the nutfeeder, but I never get a chance to photograph them, they shoot off at the slightest movement. I only got one in the top of a tree using the zoom lens and then having to crop the picture. Well done for catching this one.

thanx bamboo, nice to have them on your balcony though, i havent see this one since sorry to say.

19 Oct, 2009

 

A spotted woodpecker, a Greater I think. I saw one yesterday in the firled where I walk my dog Jake. I tried to get as close as possible but as soon as he saw Jake he was off.

Sandra :o)

thanx sandra, havent seen him since but was thrilled to get this one chance :o))

25 Oct, 2009

 

Great (Spotted Woodpecker) photo Sandra ! It's a female - males have red on the back of the head, youngsters have a red crown and females have no red on the head at all. You must have hidden well, 'cos in my garden they're off at the slightest movement. I'm dead jealous of your House Sparrows and Starlings, they've become quite scarce in my part of Southport. I think my commonest bird visitors are Goldfinch and Greenfinch.

18 Nov, 2009

 

i havent seen this fellow since but i sneaked slowely out of the house to capture this, yes lots of sparrows, starlings, doves, blackbirds, greenfinches to, had goldfinch a few times but seem to have left me now, but i just love to sit and watch the wildlife, squirrels to ;o))

18 Nov, 2009

 

I haven't seen my woodpecker lately - but I've heard him - he woke me up yesterday at the crack of dawn, drilling into the nut feeder on the balcony.

18 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, it's good to share your garden with wild guests isn't it. :-)

18 Nov, 2009

 

i havent heard one drilling is it quite loud bamboo,
yes its wonderfull muddy being in touch with nature

19 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, it is, Sanbaz, though you have to bear in mind that the nutfeeder ( solid job, squirrel proof), though wired to the balcony railings very firmly and immovable, is nonetheless attached to metal railings - so his drilling into the nuts echoes down the metal railings. I bet all the neighbours are wondering what on earth the noise is...

19 Nov, 2009

 

aww yes it will vibrate, i bet they do wonder what the strange noise is
